A Home Away From Home:
Bobbi Florence: The Child Care Provider
I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio and I have worked with children in some capacity steadily since I was 10 years old, when I assisted my mother with a Sunday School class for 4 year olds and ended up teaching the class! I am now a single mother of two teenage boys, Todd and Sean, and originally chose family day care as a profession when the boys were small to contribute to the family income while still spending time with them.
